^+1 on sheila's idea about the Harbor Freight torque wrenches being ok for we occasional shade tree wrench turners.
If you opt for a breakover type torque wrench, as opposed to the beam type, be sure to relieve/back off the breakover torque setting when storing, so its internal spring doesn't take a set over time & corrupt its calibration.
Also Don't use the break over torque wrench as a breaker bar, to loosen stuck fastners, like lug nuts, or spark plugs.
I'd also suggest checking its calibration/break over torque setting, Before each use.
I recently caught my 1/4" drive HF break over wrench Not breaking over when torquing my Briggs V Twin spark plugs to spec. It had performed for years, doing spark plugs, tranny pan fastners, ect
, no problem, BUT, for some reason this one time it just stopped working that day & that was the day I Didn't check that puppy before use!!!! It would break over on loosening, but not tightening!!!!
Yah because I was paying attention I caught it in time, so I didn't over tighten & streatch, or strip the aluminum head plug threads out.
I'm careful when I use these break over wrenches, not to over travel when they break over, so as not to damage the break over mechanism & store the wrenches unset & clean, in their origional box & containes, with the reciepts inside, so HF replaced the 1/4 drive wrench, which still looked brand new after 7 years, no questions asked!!!!
I have a beam type 1/2 inch drive 0-100 ft/lbs Craftsman, whos calibration is traceable & I rig it with adapter fittings, to double check the break over torque settings on all 3 of my 1/4 - 3/8 - 1/2 inch drive break over torque wrenches Before I use them!!!!
The torque ranges of the HF 1/4 - 3/8 - 1/2 inch drive will cover most of the fastners we'll likely run into on our cars & light trucks. Some of the large driveline fastners may require a 3/4 drive higher torque range, but I've gotten by with the old 0-100 ft/lb Craftsman for years, before opting for the 3 HF ratcheting break over wrenches, which I prefer to use, as I don't have to watch a torque scale when using & torquing tranny pan fastners, that & the ratchet function makes it a joy to use in tight spaces!!!!
More thoughts for pondering, let us know what you opt for.
